Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced it currently has no plans to release DLC for LEGO The Hobbit. In an official statement released today, the publisher confirmed The Battle of the Five Armies DLC – which sees Smaug’s end and an epic-scale battle between the citizens of Middle-earth and its evil forces – is no longer in development.
Shortly after the game’s multiplatform release in April last year, Warner Bros together with TT Games informally revealed that plans for a third film expansion were in place. However, with both the developer and publisher’s quiet stance on the matter, fans of the game feared the promised DLC had been canned. It’s uncertain how long the expansion was in development and exactly when it was ceased by Warner Bros. In our review of the Wii U game, we awarded it a gracious 7, despite the game’s flaws and deeply unsatisfactory end. You can view Warner Bros’ official statement below.
“The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy.”
Nintendo UK has uploaded a new trailer for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to celebrate the release of the first DLC pack. Fans can now download the DLC for free, which includes 14 new quests, 11 new weapons for players to choose from and four complete armour sets. And of course, fellow hunters can also try out the new Link costume, along with classic Zelda weaponry, if they so desire. With some neat stats, the Link costume will certainly pack a punch when felling large beasts on quests.
The first DLC pack is part of a number of sets from Capcom, all of which will be distributed on a Friday in the coming months. As has been the case for Monster Hunter add-on content in the past, all packs will be free to download from the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Let us know if you’ll be giving the Link costume a whirl over the weekend in the comment section below. Below you’ll find the full list of what you can get your hands on in the first pack, along with a neat video from Capcom to sum it all up, here.

Yacht Club Games has announced a free expansion pack for its 2D side-scrolling platform game Shovel Knight. The Californian-based developer has been hard at work on its first DLC pack, Plague of Shadows, since securing the game’s North American and European release on multiple platforms last year. Arriving for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, among other platforms, Plague of Shadows is due to arrive in the eShop around the second quarter of 2015.
Playing as the mischievous master of alchemy, Plague Knight, fans must guide him through various levels to find ingredients for the Ultimate Potion: Serum Supernus. But you’ll have to obtain these ingredients by extracting them from former allies – it’s a risky venture, though the Order of No Quarter won’t stand a chance against your world-class platforming skills.
The free DLC pack also features new gameplay mechanics and an alchemy crafting system for all your necessary power-ups. With many new bosses, enemies and a bunch of objectives, fans will be able to savour new flavours in a meaty expansion in Plague of Shadows. To take a look at some of the great new screenshots and illustrations, head to Yacht Club Games’ official site. Plus, gameplay details for Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows can be found below. Let us know if you’re looking forward to the expansion in the comment section.
